The Nu Project’s Nude Photos Tell The Truth About Women’s Bodies
The Nu Project is a no-glamor honest look at beauty and image in our world.
Female nudity isn’t hard to come by in the media, but the bodies we see usually represent a fairly limited scope of sizes and shapes. The Nu Project, a collection of nude photographs shot by Minneapolis photographer Matt Blum, seeks to add some variety to the mix. Blum started The Nu Project in 2005 but said it really took off when his wife, Katy Kessler, became the project’s editor. Blum sees the photos as filling a void. “When I started shooting nudes there was no project like it,” he told The Huffington Post in an email. The things that I had seen either used models with typical model bodies or average people who were made to look extremely unimpressive. I figured there was a way to treat women (of any size/shape) like models and photograph them beautifully, respectfully without a lot of sexual under or overtones. The women photographed are all volunteers, and most of the pictures are taken in the subjects’ homes — where they feel most comfortable. The Nu Project’s website showcases six galleries of nudes, three shot in North America, three in South America. Although Blum told HuffPost that he feels that they have a “good variety of people involved,” he and Kessler acknowledge on The Nu Project website that they’d love for the subjects to be more diverse. “The hardest part for us is that the project is 100 percent volunteer, so I do not see the women until I show up at their door,” Blum writes on the website. “We’re doing our best to encourage all types of women, but we need volunteers of all backgrounds and walks of life to make the project more complete.” Blum said he ultimately hopes that these images inspire the women who see them to feel better about their own bodies. “It’s been really exciting to hear people react to the images,” he told HuffPost. “We get a lot of feedback from women (especially) who have struggled to see themselves as beautiful, and this project has helped them on that path.”
In love with this.
Yes dashboard, ok.
Learn how to achieve this:
So, I’ve been getting lots of questions on how to make this. To be honest, it’s probably not as difficult as you might think.
Yeah, so, it’s really really easy.

There was a moment when we laid down next to each other, after passionate love making. His hand placed on my side, and my arms is wrapped around his, facing each other. Looking at each other in admiration, love, and an endorphin infused way.
I said that he brings out the happiness and beauty he sees in me, after he told me how beautiful I am. If it wasn’t for him, I would be alone, hallow, emotionless and bored with my life. After what felt like the first time, though it surely wasn’t, I responded to his blissful way as almost a negative. It creaked open the door or my inner being. That there is darkness still leeching on my inner being, the one who still from time to time struggles to believe words, including his.
Before I could come from my thought process of what I just said, though I didn’t mean it to sound negative, but infact life changing from him being with me, he said the most striking things.
“You are beautiful with out me.”
The way he looks at me constantly, the way he holds me, the way we talk, and how we just be in our lives with each other, it makes sense. He didn’t fall in love with a girl who is physically beautiful and attractive to him. He didn’t fall in love with her words or her interests. He fell in love with her being, her wholeness in the purest way.
There wasn’t anything more to it. With his presence like “make-up” helped enhance that underglow that was buried deep inside for so long in her flesh. The inner being she really is has been hiding for so long. The wounded spirit of abusive and depressed pasts, was shining through. Only he was able to see it. Only he wanted to see and know more. And that is what made her, me, fall in love with him.
After that moment of realization I had to hid my face away from his eyes, under his chin to hid the tears welling in my eyes. It wouldn’t be the first time he has seen those watery eyes of mine explode. In fact he brings me to tears more than anyone who had hurt me before. He even knows when my breathing changes that there is a stir inside, full of powerful emotions.
He held onto me, and waited. Waited for it to surface. Waited for it to pass. Waited for me to share how I felt, or not to. His patience is a gift, and his understanding is a blessing. He never wants to pry. Instead, he waits for me to inch open the door after door after door, letting him in.
“I don’t deserve him”, but my inner being slaps me hard for thinking such things. I wont go with out happiness, even if I sabotage it. I wont let it play out. I wont let him go.
